Forum: web Subject: Re: Ethics and honesty - too much to ask for?

In this web forum alone there are people asking the same question.
I did some background research on this as well, do some for yourself before making such a false statement.
It is (or was anyway) possible to see what the Archive looked like in 2001, 2002, 2003 ... take a look at the forums back then, same question, same no answer, same 'suggestion' to email
And for the record, what wasn't appropriate was making my content freely available on this website without my permission, and then assuring me (which was the only reason I didn't file charges) that my content was both removed and deleted.
Of all the websites on the internet one would think that the Internet Archive would at the very least be respectful and transparent.

The Internet archive makes the representation at their web site ( that "remove documents from the Wayback Machine" so they are representing that they delete the old data. I don't think they are actually following this policy or maybe it is some kind of evasive statement meant to trick people so that the data is removed from Wayback but saved somewhere else.

In any case the IA is not operating like a legitimate library.
